Eve of Hurricane IKE

I'm staying & not evacuating. I walked down the road to our county park that empties into the Houston ship channel & San Jacinto River. Both are right around the short bend. What is so remarkable is this flooding occurring before a storm & NO RAIN.We moved here in 1940 . I built my house in 1991 to be next door to my mother. I can remember when this small bayou was only a stream .U could jump across it then. Now the little stream is a small bayou .U can see the silt that has been pushed up next to the rail. To the right & down to the striped pole is part of the parking lot.
